Some Loosely Chess-related Post

As Ilhamuddin pointed out before, Kenneth Rogoff is a GM and an Economics professor at Harvard University. He was also a Chief Economist at the IMF.

I don't think he plays chess seriously anymore. His FIDE rating is at 2505 but his last game on record was in 1985. My guess is that he has decided to focus on his career in Economics. Here is his latest op-ed about Technology and Inequality. It is a good read for those of you who are more economically inclined, and he does bring in a chess example to illustrate his point.
